Submitted mine today, a bit of a beast
I did TUC-COM. The website seems to use TUC COM. The dash just lowers the word count
I took it as at their school, I thought they could've been more specific with this question...Hoping for some guidance on this secondary question:
Are you a re-applicant who has previously interviewed? If yes, what was the result of that interview and what changes, if any, have you made which should affect a different outcome?
Is this question referring to having previously interviewed at TUCOM? Or previously interviewed at all? I interviewed at a different school last year, and I'm not sure if this what they're asking for.
Unless something has changed for the class of 2023, there are no mandatory lectures. We have recorded lectures that can be streamed online, and as it is, very few people attend lecture.Does this school have mandatory attendance for lectures?
Edit: looks like it does.
Not going to submit my secondary anymore. Good luck everyone!
Weird. I read the student handbook and it said mandatory lectures.Unless something has changed for the class of 2023, there are no mandatory lectures. We have recorded lectures that can be streamed online, and as it is, very few people attend lecture.
Most likely October- we still need to sort out details such as who's giving toursDo you know when was the first interview sent? Like around what time of the year
I like Mare Island, it's pretty nice area relative to the rest of Vallejo. I especially like how most places (i.e. SF, Sac) are about an hour away with Berkeley and Concord/Walnut Creek being about 30-45 minutes away.How do you like living in Vallejo?
Thanks!! Got the complete email for my secondary July 10th, II was by email and if you have gmail the email went under the "promotions" tab for some reason so make sure to keep an eye on thatCongrats!!!!!!!! Do you mind sharing when you were complete/if the II was by email?
Oh good to know, thanks! I was complete 7/9 and super excited about this school so I'm going to be somewhat neurotic about checking my email now hahaThanks!! Got the complete email for my secondary July 10th, II was by email and if you have gmail the email went under the "promotions" tab for some reason so make sure to keep an eye on that
Thanks! I was complete 7/6 and still nothing... love this school so keeping my fingers crossed but it seems they "skipped" over me for the time being.My primary app was finished on 7/23 which includes LOR and transcripts.
My secondary was complete on 8/10.
Hope that helps!
